Council Resolution - Local Planning Policy and Scheme Amendment
At its meeting held on Wednesday 25 November 2020, the City of Fremantle Council resolved to adopt Local Planning Policy 3.21 - West End Heritage Area. The new policy will come into effect upon publication of a notice in the Fremantle Herald, scheduled for Friday 11 December 2020.
Council also resolved to initiate a scheme amendment to remove the mandatory upper floor setback requirement for buildings in the West End which exceed 3 storeys and 11 metres in height. Further details of this scheme amendment will be published on this website once a response from the Environmental Protection Authority on the amendment has been received by the City. The scheme amendment will involve its own community consultation, which is anticipated to be undertaken in the first quarter of 2021.
